WHAT OUR COMMUNITY SAYS ABOUT US
L.I.G.H.T.’s organic, egalitarian community problem-solving ethos permits the youth group to recognize and celebrate each person contributing and developing their civic skills and passion. They are community at its best.
It is incredible to witness the strong relationships formed as a result of meaningful discussions and actions taken by L.I.G.H.T. to address gaps in York Region. Improving the quality of life for all members in the community is undoubtedly at the heart of their work.
I have been doing community development work for 30 years and I can honestly say that I have never encountered in my career, such a motivated, insightful, and determined group of young people. They are passionate about equity and social justice, advocating for younger children, pushing the boundaries on what youth are expected to do, and determined to change the world one small step at a time.
Youth helping youth, L.I.G.H.T. is just an incredible organization!
A creative, energetic, and diverse group of youth that ignite social change across York Region!
